According to the legal docs, Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered Brown to perform 180 days of community service, and allowed him to do it in Virginia, where he has a residence.

“After a thorough review of all documents and evidence submitted to the Court it appears that there are significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst, fraudulent reporting and possible misdemeanors violations,” the documents state.

“In fact, the evidence shows that although Virginia Probation accepted supervision of Brown, no one from that Department ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor reported to this Court."

The investigation also revealed that while records showed Brown was said to be picking up trash in Virginia, he was actually on a private jet to Cancun.
